“Do you have a hostile mind or is it only “those people” who do?
In today’s podcast and post we take a look at the fastest growing religion in the world: Politics. We’ll explore why it has generated so much power, and ignites such hatred and division among us. Is there any hope for our world?
Join me now as we see beyond the quagmire of the political binary and explore how it’s possible for this dividing line of hostility to be eradicated, and how the world can be set free from its bondage to a hostile mind and healed through the power of love.
Every win/lose paradigm ends the same way; smug winners and angry losers. Seeing the world through a binary lens is at the heart of what it means to be poor and the result is the suffering we see in every corner of the globe. In this post and podcast I provide an example of how two completely opposite truth claims can be resolved into something bigger than either claim. This has always been the path forward as this is the path to wisdom. Somewhere we bought into this idea that if one thing is right then the opposite must be wrong and we began erecting monuments and systems that support our team. The end result was the dehumanization of the other side or what I call poverty.
Whether it be one of those manipulative Facebook posts or a person with strong religious convictions, we all tend to have a similar reaction toward things that seem like we are getting set up. In this post I show how this experience is telling us that we are bumping up against a rigid binary system where we will be deemed valid or invalid. It turns out that religion is full of duality whereas true spirituality evolves into a ternary mindset and is evidenced by the simple beauty of humility.
